Maple Sugar Scones,Coffee, Gifts, Happy New Year!



I’ve mentioned these delectable delights before but it must me mentioned again. There’s nothing like a freshly baked maple scone and a cup of  St. Lawrence Valley Roasters coffee for breakfast. The coffee site is still under construction. It’s a long story….but if you see something you’d like or need a list of what’s available you can call or email. Tim will be happy to help you out. We’ve prepared and mailed several gift baskets and many pounds of coffee over the holiday season. Soon there will be a brand new upgraded, updated, website so that our customers can buy our coffee any time, anywhere! So, be looking for that.

North Fork Gifts is also becoming busier and busier. As the gift basket maker and crafter, Lisa has been making many hand made soy wax candles, soaps, lotions, scrubs and such. Her website is also a work in progress but you can purchase via or on etsy or art fire where she also has shops. The same goes….if there’s something you’d like that you can’t seem get the website to help you with, send an email and Lisa will be happy to help  you out. Don’t forget that I do custom orders too.  As things progress I will be updating everyone so please do come back and check us out.

I will also take this time to thank everyone who has stayed at North Fork B&B, purchased our coffee and or gifts. We look forward to an even more productive year in 2011. Happy New Year!  ” The place where everyone feels at home.”

Oh the Baking…

I know it’s been a few days since you’ve heard from me but believe me, it’s been for good reason. I opened another shop on Etsy. I debated about it for a while and then took the plunge. I’m not sure I want to keep the gift shop on Etsy open as it doesn’t seem that I’ve been selling enough to suit me. I’m not sure about this one either but I’m doing it anyway. My new shop is called Baker Road Bakery. Since I’m baking for 2 coffee shops and people love my baked goods, I thought it would be a good idea to put them on Etsy as well. I can reach more people that way. If the baked goods don’t begin to sell then I will know it’s not the right thing to do. I certainly have put my time in on the gift shop part. I figure, you don’t know if you don’t try. I can’t afford the time though if it isn’t going to pan out. I’ve been at it a year and I’m about to give up on it.

Anyway I wanted to share some of my latest creations. These are Chocolate Peanut Butter Whoopee Pies.

They are very yummy indeed. When I delivered more baked goods tonight, I was so surprised to see how many things were left from my original order. This was the first batch and I took another one tonight.

My chocolate chip scones were a hit as well. These delicious scones have buttermilk in them which gives them a most wonderful taste.  I’m pleased that they are a hit and can’t wait to make more.
These raspberry squares went really fast!
And last but certainly not least, sour cream coffee cake. I hope you enjoy seeing some of the things I’ve been baking. Every day I am planning on making soap and then another order comes in. It’s OK. I don’t mind! Well that’s about all for today. 7AM rehearsal so I’m done for the day.Hopefully, I’ll be able to write again tomorrow.
